As for other changes, we bolted on a FMF Fatty pipe
that is designed to broaden the power from top to bottom and teamed it with a Turbine Core 2 silencer with a
U.S. Forestry-approved spark arrestor system that makes
it legal in all OHV areas and is less restrictive than the
stock unit. We replaced the stock reed valve system with a
VForce3 system by Moto Tassinari that features double the
reed-tip surface, allowing the reeds to fully open by traveling half the distance of a conventional reed-valve design.
This improves bottom-end torque, midrange pull and over-rev on the top end. The last item we included for engine
performance on this build was VP Racing’s brand-new T2
fuel. T2 is 101-octane gas and comes premixed at a 40-1
ratio using a high-grade, fully synthetic oil.
With the engine performance out of the way, we turned
to the crew at Race Tech for some added comfort in the
suspension department. Our goal was to give it a plush
feel initially to handle all the small bumps without beating
us up, but we wanted it to have good resistance to bot-
toming on big hits just in case we encountered them on
the trail. We kept the stock springs rates at both ends,
performance springs, which are engineered to be light-
weight, give a more accurate spring rate, and are made in
the USA. Race Tech also installed its patented Gold Valve
system for improved flow to work with the new valving in
the forks and shock and resist bottoming. ODI Controlled
Flex Technology bars added a little more shock resistance
to the front end of our two-stroke, and we mounted them
to GPR’s Pro Version 4 stabilizer setup that features all-
new shock-absorbing bar mounts. The Version 4 stabilizer
mounts underneath the handlebars and includes a CNC-
machined, billet aluminum top triple clamp that’s anodized
black with your choice of stabilizer colors.
We were pleasantly surprised with the outcome of the
YZ250 powerplant, especially when the only major mods
were VForce3 reeds, a FMF pipe, Rekluse auto clutch,
Boyesen Supercooler and a little VP T2 in the tank.
Magic INC gave us a little Candy
